Is this thread reason enough?


P.S- Racing isn`t a stunt.

Look . . . the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances, we guard you while you sleep. Do not fu|< with us.

350hp??? Unless you're a PROFESSIONAL rider dont even think about touching it. If you think you're capable of handling an R6, you're not.

Ah. I see. You're just curious about the bike vs a car and I'm thinking R7, not RX-7. Put it this way, on my F4i I've beat a dodge viper twin turbo with no problems. If its not a 6 digit car, it wont beat a modern, stock, 600. (nitrous cars excluded)
For the most part cars only have us on top speed.

are you sure it takes 6 digits to beat a 6hun. I've seen some ballsy supras and things of that nature that didn't take too much money to build

The 6 figure thing is a rule of thumb. I know there are plenty of cars out there that can beat a 600cc supersport, but overall they are incredibly few and far between.
For my area I know of 2 cars that didnt cost mondo money MSRP that can for sure do it. One is a sponsored demo car the other is an old muscle car, mad max style. Showed off for one of my friends on the freeway one time. He was on a 600 ninja with about a 20mph head start. The guy punched the throttle. My friend didnt even bother to try to keep up. Some rich, old, happy guy.
If you want a better firgure I'd say you'd be hard pressed to find a car that would cost less that 50k, list price with labor, to build that could run the sub 3 second 0-60 and 10 second range 1/4 mile.
Different worlds though. My little rocket cost less than 10 grand and I'd take a ride on it over a ride in a million dollar car.

Hmmmmmmm.... You beat it what.. off the line? I've seen R1s struggle against STOCK vipers - let alone a twin turbo. I'm callin'

As for the RX-7, it all depends. The stock 1993-95 RX-7 (Touring Package) came with twin turbos - One small one for the low revs and a large one for top end. Many quarter mile guys change these out for one large T4/T3 Hybrid turbo. Most likely the R6 should beat RX-7 all around if the rider is good and the RX-7's turbo configuration is still stock.
